Avoid a scare this Halloween!

September 28, 2022

Little ones love Halloween. While it can be a scary night, we want to make sure you don’t have any unwanted scares. Follow our tips below to make sure you have a spooky, and safe Halloween.

Stay clear of candles and naked flames. You should use LED or battery-operated lights in your home and inside pumpkins. That way there is less risk of costumes catching fire.

Costumes and accessories should always have the CE mark. The CE mark should be on the costume itself or the packaging. You may also decide to get crafty and make your own costumes. If you do, make sure they don’t have any flammable materials, such as glue, plastic or cotton wool.

Always check the packaging on face paint to make sure it has the CE mark. It should also have a clear list of ingredients, and the manufacturer and importer’s details.

Remember, only give your child safe props for their costumes. These are not usually classified as toys and so don’t meet the safety standards required for toys. Make sure that swords, devil forks and other accessories are soft and flexible.

You should remind children and teenagers about the dangers of bonfires. Also remember that fireworks are illegal.

 

Have a safe and spooky Halloween!
